The Residential Development Council is the leading representative for Australia’s residential developers, providing powerful advocacy on behalf of the industry that drives Australia’s economy. We proudly lead the conversation for the industry that hands over the keys to 600 new homes each day, and plays a critical role in addressing Australia’s housing affordability crisis.
We champion efficient housing supply and choice, and have the trust of governments around the country. Through research and thought leadership on tax, planning, development and environmental approvals, our objective is to encourage best practice principles and greater Federal government leadership to improve housing affordability. We also work to encourage new development opportunities for our members, such as build-to-rent (BTR).
This page collates our suite of information, resources, industry committees and events related to the residential and BTR sector.
